CE mourns Tong Wai-ki

Chief Executive Carrie Lam today expressed deep sorrow over the passing of Hong Kong Taoist Association Chairman Tong Wai-ki.   She said Mr Tong was held in high regard, adding that he had been committed to promoting the Taoist religion and Chinese culture and actively participated in social services and charitable activities, making significant contributions over the years.   He was awarded the Silver Bauhinia Star in 2013.   "I am deeply saddened by the passing of Mr Tong. On behalf of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government, I would like to extend my deepest condolences to his family and the Taoist community," Mrs Lam noted.   Acting Secretary for Home Affairs Patrick Nip also expressed deep condolences over the passing of Mr Tong.   He commended Mr Tong for dedicating his life in promoting the Taoist religion and uniting the Taoist community while actively participating in charitable services and talent nurturing. http://dlvr.it/SHNxxJ

Helper quarantine facilities explained

The Government needs to consider the implications on public health and hotel room supply when identifying quarantine facilities for foreign domestic helpers, Secretary for Labour & Welfare Dr Law Chi-kwong said today.   Dr Law made the remarks to the media, explaining why the Government had to be prudent in arranging the quarantine facilities for helpers arriving from overseas.   “(While) trying to provide these quarantine facilities for foreign domestic helpers, we try not to affect the overall supply (of hotel rooms) for people coming back from elsewhere.   “It is very important for us to closely monitor the situation because there is always a risk that when we allow people from these high risk areas to come back to Hong Kong in large numbers, (it would) put substantial pressure on our system and there can always be a leakage.   “So to ensure our measures will not affect our overall strategy, we have to do it very carefully and step by step.”   Currently, one hotel is designated as the quarantine facility for helpers. Dr Law said the Government will keep exploring other options in view of the earnest demand for foreign domestic helpers.   The Chief Executive announced yesterday that helpers arriving from overseas may undergo quarantine at the Penny’s Bay centre on Lantau Island within September. Dr Law supplemented that he expected the new arrangement to be implemented in the latter half of the month.   “As long as we can find an option that is workable, we will make it known so potential employers will know when and how many (quarantine facilities) will be available in the near future.”
